Funny, I was just downloading one of Martyn's sounds and it plays
automagically in quicktime and I haven't been able to find yet how to
make it stop.
More and more I hate it when I spend more time in the care and feeding
of the computer than doing what I'm really trying to do! Slow
progression from EE to luddite, I fear.

Real audio program started and replayed the file as .mpga (or whatever).
sounded terrible!! A twisted frequency curve and broken and scratchy.
Then I right clicked at the link and took "save target". It downloaded

But I got another .mpga file!! - which could only be replayed by the
program, with a terrible result!
I had to rename the file to MP3 to make WaveLab replay it! Then it
I was really surprised, both that Real sounds so terribly bad, and that
renames mp3 files into it's own format.
I wonder: How many people out there listen to the sounds we post with
useless programs like Real - without knowing how useless it is?? Files
we post because we like them, but which others cannot appreciate.
I know I did! When I downloaded Martyn's "Eagles & waterfowl" I got it
mpga and replayed it with Real.
I am very sorry, Martyn! I will never do it again, but I didn't know!
Another thing: Please don't forget to remove the cellophan from your DAT
tapes and MD's BEFORE you start the excursion! I lost more than five
of a very nice recording session last night, just because I didn't have
sharp object to remove the fu...
